Apple iPhone 5s review

 

Another year, another iPhone. Is this one the best yet?

Touch ID is genuinely useful ; Improved low light camera performance ; Excellent performance

Average battery life ; Same sized 4in screen ; Touch ID needs more support

Apple's iPhone 5s has a small screen by 2013 standards and is unlikely to attract users switching from large screen Android devices, but it remains the best smartphone Apple has ever released. The useful fingerprint sensor, a faster processor and...

Apple iPhone 5s

 

The iPhone 5s is Apple's greatest demonstration yet of what total control over both hardware and software can offer. Bursting with potential, it now needs the software to deliver on its promise.

The A7 + M7 one-two processing punch ; 64-bit iOS 7 ; Touch ID ; A faster, smarter camera

Battery struggles under heavy load ; Same old keyboard ; Still no NFC

If you look beyond the surface, there is a great deal of technical and functional innovation tucked away in the iPhone 5s waiting to be unleashed by some smart iOS developers. Today, we have to stop short of giving an Editor's Choice award, but we feel...

The new iPhones may look similar, but the choice is simple.

Apple iPhone 5s vs 5c: which model should you buy?

 

Apple stepped out of its comfort zone when it launched the iPhone 5c alongside the iPhone 5s in September. It was the first time the company had debuted more than one smartphone at an event, putting iPhone owners in a quandary.

If you’re in the market for a new iPhone now and are uncertain about which way to go, the answer has to be to opt for the iPhone 5s. In two years’ time, when you’re installing iOS 8, you’ll almost certainly regret it if you don’t.

Review: Apple iPhone 5s vs 5c

 

Apple stepped out of its comfort zone when it launched the 5c alongside the 5s in September. It was the first time the company had debuted more than one smartphone at an event, putting iPhone owners in a quandary.

A great handset, but still not the best.

REVIEW: iPhone 5s

 

Apple's premium smartphone dazzles with biometrics, but the camera isn't that flash. With signs there may be teething problems for the new M7 processor, the iPhone 5s is good but not perfect.

Apple’s best yet: iPhone 5S reviewed

 

While it's not the upgrade that many wanted or expected, the iPhone 5S is the best iPhone Apple has made yet, evolving the platform just enough to keep it a leading device with solid features.

Still the same lovely design as before, Performs very well, Fingerprint scanner is great for unlocking the phone and buying apps, 4G connection is very fast, Feels great in the hand

No NFC, No 802.11ac, True Tone flash is versatile, but doesn't dampen flash colour as much you expect

iPhone 5s Australian Review: The Best iPhone Yet

 

You could be forgiven for thinking that this year's crop of iPhones is a festival celebrating very little. But under the hood, quietly lurking beneath the surface is something special, and makes it the best iPhone yet. Here's why.

Apple iPhone 5s Review

 

Apple's latest flagship smartphone is a modest step forward, with a few new ideas that you can expect to see used across the phone industry in the near future.

The major consideration for us is price. The iPhone 5s is good, but does it deserve to be the most expensive device in the phone shop? Choosing any high-end Android device could save you between $10 to $20 per month, and while there are many difference...

iPhone 5s: Australian Hands-On

 

While iFans were still lining up around the nation, the new iPhone 5s landed on our test bench and we've already been putting it through its paces. It's amazing how something so marginally different can feel completely new and fresh.
